The Stairs / The Anxious Daughter

I guess the mountains did it. Ever since I have been losing significant amounts of weight, I have been waiting for the day when I can climb the three flights of steps to my apartment, with groceries, without needing to stop and rest in the middle. And while I have progressed from the climb being a very strenuous multi-stop trek, I have still found need to pause.
Today and Yesterday I made it up, groceries and all, in a single go! I suspect its all those steps on the mountain trails that did the trick…GRIN

Well, we all know of mothers who stay awake waiting for their kids to arrive home. In our house, I am afraid that it is RICKI who often waits up for me!
I had Ricki all ready for bed when I left the house at 8:45 to go to my weekly swimming session. (Others were also home.)Well, as often happens, on my arrival home I was greeted by Ricki popping out of bed with a sigh of relief that I have returned. But rather than complaining that I had dared leave, she actually asked me very sweetly if I had enjoyed the pool!

Successes! May you and Ricki continue to "swim" in success, as you reach for your goals!
